## The B-VITAGE trial: a randomized trial of homocysteine lowering treatment of depression in later life.

Trials (2010) PMID 20096138

Depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide and depressive symptoms are common in later life. Observational evidence suggests that depression is more prevalent among people with high plasma homocysteine (tHcy), but the results of randomized trials to date have been unable to show that lowering tHcy through the supplementation of vitamins B6, B12 and folate benefits depressive symptoms. We designed the B-VITAGE trial to determine whether adjunctive treatment with vitamins B6, B12 and folate increases the efficacy of standard antidepressant treatment.

We estimate the distances to these galaxies from the Luminosity of the tip of the red giant branch (TRGB). We obtain $VI$ photometry Of resolved stars in these galaxies from $F555W$ and $F814W$ images in the {\it Hubble Space Telescope} archive. From the luminosity function of these red Giants we fi...
